The group Right Sized Newton has reportedly submitted signatures to the Newton City Clerk asking the city council to reverse its 17-7 approval of the zoning for Northland project.  Two sources say they submitted in excess of the 3,032 needed signatures. 

The signatures have not yet been certified so it’s too soon to say if this effort has been successful.

If certified and the council denies Right Size’s request, the question would be placed before voters (as Mayor Fuller explained here).

UPDATED: This just in from City Clerk David Olson:

The petitions were delivered around 10:30 am today.   587 sheets were delivered and the petitioners believe they have 4000+ signatures.  They also noted that they will be dropping off more sheets on Monday.  We have started the certification of the signatures.  Depending on how many more they bring on Monday,  I don’t expect to have the certification done until the week of New Year’s.
